    What do people think is the best leaf blower option for walker mowers?

    Buffalo?
    Walker?
    Any others?

    I bought a Buffalo Turbine blower in 2004 and it has been a great tool. I have replaced 2 end nozzels due to employee damage, and 2 belts. If you have big properties or steep properties or properties where you blow into the woods, this blower shins. The nozel rotates 180 degrees with the push of a button so you can move a big leaf pile by starting the nozel at the top of the pile and working down. Once you get the hang of it you can move piles 30' at a shot. Its a bit expensive to buy but very profitable to own. It saves a lot of man hours compared to a big push blower.
